PLEASANT HILLS, Pa. - A customer said a Party City employee refused to fill her balloon order after finding out it was for a police officers memorial ceremony.
Karly Lane told Channel 11 she went to Party City on Saturday to buy a dozen blue and black balloons for her friend, Duquesne officer Robert GoGo Jr., who died in an off-duty motorcycle accident almost a month ago.
Lane told the clerk that the balloons were for a memorial ceremony in GoGos honor. The clerk allegedly told Lane she refused to support a police officer and had someone else wait on her.
"How can you not support a police officer? It doesn't matter. They don't know my brother. They don't know what kind of man he was. They don't know what he did in his job. It just hurts," GoGos sister Jennifer Martino.

I wonder what would happen if people started picketing against these businesses?
The first thing I think people of that community need to know is the exact name of that employee who took it upon itself to be cruel.
NAME! FULL NAME!
Yes, it was an individual employee making a choice, so it was really just someone making a “statement”.
Some BLM people actually have jobs. Apparently this one does. :-)
Also, there really are a lot of ditzy 20-somethings that really have no clue and just jump on the latest “thing to protest” wagon without really thinking about it. They are sort of the #neohippies.
I guess they won’t be calling the cops if the place gets robbed.
And that stupid immature jump on the bandwagon should hurt. Losing your job and being forced to provide a public apology at 20-something for being an idiot is a learning experience and one that should be learned by the skull full of mush employee.
what transpired was, yet another worthless Obama voter has decided to take it to the next level. These people are taking Obama's many, many cues about how America is bad and racist and mean.

::L Karly Lane told Channel 11 she went to Party City on Saturday to buy a dozen blue and black balloons for her friend, Duquesne officer Robert GoGo Jr. ::
Lane is assumed to be a married name but...GoGo [caps included]?
Officer’s ancestral nationality?
Yes, that’s his name. His death was a big local story.
No bias here
It’s not at all like the baker who refused to make a cake for a gay couple; because he didn’t agree with their life choices. Then was fined $100K+
No, wait a minute. It is exactly like that case
What kind of surname is 'GoGo'? With a name like that, was he speeding when he wrecked his motorcycle?
Thanks for the clarify!
Google is your friend.
I tried Google. Got a lot of returns for the in-flight wi-fi service.
How dare a private individual at a private business make a private choice to refuse service to a government employee?
Makes sense. If the balloon popped and someone yelled “gun”, there could be four or five people dead.
Maybe the name is an abbreviated form of Gogola or Gogolak?
A lot of East European ancestry in this part of PA.
Did you click on the link in my post? I got that link from Google by entering the officer’s name.
